The winners of this year's Healthcare
Environment Awards competition remind us that
there are new ideas and great work on the horizon
By Debra Levin

OR SO MANY of us, 2020 can't end soon enough. It's been

an exhausting and challenging year on so many fronts.
And though things won't be magically idyllic on Jan. 1,
2021, the new year offers a fresh start.
As we prepare to ring in 2021, there are things to
be grateful for and other things to look forward to.
For starters, we've all learned a host of new skills. In
March, most of our lives changed dramatically overnight and we were forced to pause our usual day-to-day routine, giving us
an unexpected opportunity to take stock and hopefully gain some clarity
around what's most important in our lives. We became Zoom masters;
scheduled virtual get-togethers with family, friends, and colleagues;
and, if you're like me, reached out to people we hadn't connected with
for a very long time to check on how they were faring. And we sharpened
our pencils regarding our finances and re-evaluated how and why we do
many of the things we do in our work, frequently coming up with new and
better ways to do things.
Another cause for celebration was the incredible work done by our
industry. This year we had an unprecedented number of projects submitted to The Center's Healthcare Environment Awards competition,
produced in association with our partner Healthcare Design magazine.
For more than two decades, this program has been recognizing and celebrating innovation and the impact of design on safety, experience, efficiency, and outcomes in healthcare projects, both built and conceptual.
This year, five projects received awards from the jury and an additional
five took home honorable mentions.
The jurors were impressed by the quality and level of innovation of this
year's submissions and the extent to which design was leveraged to solve
specific challenges faced by their clients. The design thinking and consideration that went into how the environment could improve the experience and optimize outcomes was notable in both the professional and
student categories.
Not surprisingly, a new category was created this year after receiving a
significant number of submissions exploring groundbreaking solutions to
the challenges healthcare clients experienced in adapting to the COVID-19
virus. Also of note was the extent to which research was integrated into
many of the projects, clearly showing the growing number of firms incorporating an evidence-based design approach in their work.
I'd like to congratulate all the awardees:

Clinic-Riverside, submitted by AECOM
* COVID-Response Acute Care Winner-STAAT Mod, submitted by
HGA and The Boldt Company
